    The new puppets definitely improve the overall look and designs of the original 70s puppets, but I swear these things look like puppets I would have built: the shapes of some of their hands are dead ringers from my puppet hands.

    So I'm 3 days late on this, but here is the continuation of Mr. M's market trip in episode 2. He sings his song in this one!

    Sure took long enough to get a 3rd episode from the new series, and it's a rather dull one. Just a very basic review of capital M and lowercase m and its sound, plus some of that obsolete "talk to the screen" formula.

    Look at how far Mr. M's come. Back in the 70s he was a ravenous hog at the supermarket, and now he's become a well behaved manager!

    Huh, seems kind of quiet here. Can't really talk too much as of now, but I'd like to share something.

    Hey, Bliffenstimmers, are you going to be doing the rest of the Letter People anytime soon?

    @D'Snowth: Never expect me to finish what I start. It's always been like that with me, but even more so these days. I've taken multiple hiatuses from my webcomic due to my declining energy and poor health. If I'm up to it, I may do a few more since you mentioned it and I'm on another one of those hiatuses.

    I currently drew a handful of my favorite Letter People for an art jam. Hope you enjoy them.

    Haha, I like 'em! They look more human, yet are still very stylized; great job!

    Thank you! I based my drawings on how the Letter People looked in the TV series.

    Although this had already been online for 3 months, here's the latest of the "new" old Letter People videos, and perhaps the highlight of them all so far.

    Instead of remaking Mr. T's original song word-for-word, they've written him up an all new ditty. Although it loses the quiet, bluesy flavor of the original, it's still a funny little earworm.

    Speaking of changes, keep an eye out for the new Mr. G. He looks less like a blob of chewing gum and more like one of Jim Henson's earlier utility monsters...

    If you happen to prefer the original songs -- I hate to advertise, but -- check out the YouTube channel Uncommon Ephemera. They've uploaded the complete Letter People songs from the school program LPs (though including the revised inventor Miss I and optimist Miss O) and the rest of their channel is chock full of audio rarities you won't normally see on digital media: kids albums, educational records, promotional material, it's worth a look!

    I really wish the Lucky Star's song was released on an album. I just love those old-school Moog sounds in there. :)
